Broken ankle

We are so sad to be losing 
Sorella Lo Russo
to a broken ankle.  It was a simple wrong step on
uneven ground to cause a devastating injury.
She still continues to "scatter sunshine all along her way"
in spite of the evident challenges.
These are the kind of missionaries that bless the people of Italy.

What's harder?
Serving or being served?
Sorella Lo Russo is one to meet the needs of others
and finds ways to serve in spite of her injury.
Thanks to her great companion, Sorella Tullis,
for "being there" in the best of ways.

"Where love is - there God is also."

New Missionary Training

One month after their arrival
our new missionaries are gathered again for additional training.
This is a wonderful group that is here
"for the right reasons".
We love them already,
and are so grateful they have come.

"The work of our missionaries
is a magnificent expression of
the Lord's redeeming love."
~D. Todd Christopherson~

We learn by doing in a mission.
It's primarily "on-the-job" training.
This "face drawing" activity related to the importance
of being a patient and caring companion.
We do our best.
Every face was different,
but every one was able to create a very fine face.
